National Right to Life: Title X Change Would Allow Taxpayer Funding of Abortion

National Right to Life Committee President Carol Tobias
National Right to Life submitted a letter to HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra on Monday opposing a proposed rule change for Title X funding. The change would eliminate rules set during the Trump administration that barred Title X grant recipients from providing abortion, referring patients to abortion businesses, or co-locating with organizations that provide abortion.

“The proposed rule would allow the creation of an accounting gimmick that enable Title X funds to support abortion services. Providing Title X dollars to abortion facilities frees up other money that can be used to promote and provide abortion,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “The use of taxpayer funds to support abortion services and facilities is clearly prohibited by the law.” 

Tobias added, “The proposed rule change would also require abortion counseling—contrary to conscience protection laws.”
